We, the Cranes of the National Residence Hall Honorary, desire to connect students to a larger picture through developing leadership and participating in service initiatives. The Excelsior Chapter shall serve as a stepping-stone for accomplished leaders who have soared to new heights and have earned the honor of being recognized for their diligence and commitment to the college community at large.

OTM's is a recognition initiative that NRHH does to recognize the hard work student leaders do to make SUNY Old Westbury a better community. Anyone that is a part of the community is able to fill out a link (provided below) to nominate a student leader, club/ organization, or event that has happened that month to show their appreciation for their dedication to the college.
